romney won't be here. the last time a vanquished opponent didn't show up was in 1985 for ronald reagan, and walter mondale was a no-show. that was the last time that the 20th state fell on a sunday and they had to do the monday as i rememberrial, versus another day. and back in those days, it was the coldest one on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with personal contributions, all capped at $50,000 or less and there was disdain expressed by the administration about taking corporate money, et cetera. all of those conditions have been lifted. they are taking corporate monet and $50,000 cap has been lifted and it's smaller. they don't expect to raise $53 million, making it eas
deal to him. >> okay. 1985 ronald reagan comes up. he says exactly the opposite. exactly the opposite of barack obama reagan says the government's the problem. we ought to get the government out of the way and unleash the american people who will return the nation to prosperity. reagan very popular president among americans remains so. personally, personally barack obama very popular. i think his personal rate is around 59%. job approval 52. how can this country in the space of, what, almost 30 years, change so dramatically in our philosophy? >> well, first of all, obama today did say that it's a fiction to believe that government alone can solve all of the problems. so he is taking somewhat of a middle course now. if you look at that speech, i mean, it's an odd speech he just threw out things. there is kind of no coherent plan and, again, i think the missed opportunity was to say to the american public and the world, look, this is where i'm going. this is what matters. one, two, three. these are the things i'm going to do. and there was a scatter shot approach. and i think a lot of t
inaugural. but also theodore roosevelt, dwight eisenhower, ronald reagan. i look at it more as a form of relaxation for the president when we get to meet him. he gets to chew the fat a lit bit about past presidents. >> doris, you're a presidential expert, how do you rate president obama in the pantheon of great presidents? or just presidents? >> well, you know, when you think about the great presidents, great necessities call forth great leaders. so george washington, abraham lincoln, fdr had a huge crises to face. obama had a pretty big crisis to face. he did accomplish in health care something since presidents since teddy roosevelt have been trying to accomplish. but i think most importantly, we'll see now the fact that he's got a second term, that's really important to embolden him for what he can accomplish, and more importantly, to show that the country supported kurg a very difficult time his leadership and they wanted him back again. so i think he's got a shot. it depends a lot on what happens in the second term, if he can create -- i wish he would go in the midterms to try to
on the east side of the capital. and then four years later, when ronald reagan was inaugurated on the west front. sometimes he is credited for making that change, but that change was in the world for quite awhile. it would have been on the west front with carter, later, had ts turn that different. the view on the east front, compared to the west front was not very good. the east front used to be a parking lot, and then you have homes. parking lot, streets, kind of like a little town. whereas, here on the west side, you can accommodate these immense crowds. and they can see something. >> of course, president obama's first inaugural was attended by over a million people, i believe, gathering on the mall. the expectations is it will be somewhere about half that tomorrow. that is typical of second inauguration's. they are not as well -- publicly attended as the first. i think it is because the country is not as excited, they know who you are, they have seen you. my friend, who was also a chief speech writer for bill clinton -- i read something that he had written recently -- and let us begin,
't mention the president that we popularly think are the most eloquent; ronald reagan and john f. kennedy. were they just good at regular words, or did they -- >> oh, no, they had, i mean, john f. kennedy had wonderful phrases, and the new frontier was his. but they were more or eloquent in sense of their ability to give speeches. ronald reagan as well. but they didn't have the -- it wasn't that they created a term that was, that just was with everlasting. i mean, some of them have interesting, you know, you go to new frontier, you go to truman, truman had some nice things. i mean, snollgoster, it was an old american term. truman had, um, i know that wasn't your question, but they've all got stories. my favorite trumanism was at one point he was having a lot of trouble with congress, and he invoked the term "trocar." trocar is a metal trumpet that's used to relieve pressure in organic places. and in the prairies in missouri when a bull or a cow or bovine animal would eat too much clover, there would be a huge amount of gas inside the, inside the animal, and they would insert this instrume
parallel here for a previous two-term president. check this out. this is ronald reagan's first-term portrait and this is ronald reagan's second-term portrait. put those up, side by side. that is how president reagan went from portrait one to portrait two. start of term one to start of term two. now look at president obama. see similarities there? it's not like every president does this. just reagan and now obama. i think people make too much of the political parallels between obama and reagan, but aesthetically, you kind of can't make too much of this one. in this case in the evolution of the official portrait, i think you can make as much of this parallel that you want to because that's kind of an uncanny thing, isn't it? the newport rat is out. the new term is about to start. we here at msnbc and everybody in the news business is gearing up for inaugural weekend coverage. this will be my second time covering an inauguration. we'll have the whole schedule for you of when everything happens and when it's going to be on tv. that's coming up a little later on in the show tonight.

that teflon president ronald reagan. i have the words that come after them, hoover bill and have her eyes. president herbert hoover was in charge of the feeding of europe and the foodstuffs for the world. the hoover eyes need to be careful, not wasted, not throw food away. that's a positive turn back. , but yeah i do that because that's part of their legacy. >> are the reasons it nicely harder for president obama to notably nila chase analyst for the founding father? can he talk about how you research the book? >> it's probably a little bit harder, but if you just look at the language created by the internet and in the last 20 years, it probably isn't. it may happen by chance. when lincoln creates a really interesting words, one of the words he first uses he's talking about secession. he said the secessionist sugarcoating the impact on this country. the printer of the united states comes to lincoln and says we cannot put this in the official record. lincoln said i can't imagine any american not knowing. again, going back to william safire's influence on his, one of the first uses of cool,
at the personal histories of the number of u.s. presidents, it does not inspire confidence. ronald reagan, whose father was an appalling, and he dealt with that by this massive separation from reality, such that he could not touch of reality from fiction, even before his alzheimer's. this is well known about him. you look at somebody like clinton, also an abused child, his need for validation, to be liked, validated by women all the time. the kennedys. you look at george bush jr., who used to have an awful problem -- alcohol problem. these people had difficult histories. i remember being in toronto, ontario. it seemed like every time i published a book, the american bomb somebody. the first time i published a book was on add. just when it came out, they were bombing yugoslavia. the next book, they were bombing iraq. i remember watching george bush jr. on television talking about the impending invasion and attack on iraq. i turned the sound down -- and i do not know if you have ever had the experience of watching george bush, not for what he was saying, but from the perspective of body language,
that, juan? >> no, it's his inauguration and i think that i remember back to covering ronald reagan, he introduced the idea of bringing people onto the balcony giving the state of the union to illustrate the point he was trying to make, the program, the legislative agenda he set for himself and i think this is a lot like this and reminded of the criticism that attracted the president attracted yesterday when he had those young people, those children at the ceremony for his signing that gun-- his executive orders on gun control, but the idea, i think, is as i understand it from the white house, to exhibit core values that attach to this administration, so this is the president saying this is who i am, i stand for someone who didn't have health care before. i stand for a gay persowants to. i stand for veterans who served and now deserve a job in the country. that's upbeat stuff to my mind. >> megyn: ben? >> juan, there's also people sitting there going you've got a guy who got an overinflated salary and we lost money bailing money out of an auto company and a break because he choose to pu
, a tradition that dates back to ronald reagan. the nomination of john kerry officially to serve as secretary of state. his confirmation hearing will take place this thursday. we're told a vote will take place next tuesday. he will be sworn in as secretary of state next wednesday. chuck hagel to head up the funds and j-- head up defense and jack lew as secretary of state. >> i think chuck this is the steepest climb to his nomination. even before it was officially announced, a lot of members on both sides coming out. there were so many republican members, and he is a former senator republican member from nebraska. even members of his own party coming out in opposition. i think he will face a tough time. jack lew i think will also be of the cross hairs. he was sort of the president's point man when it came to the fiscal issues on capitol hill. we have seen through the spending fights that jack lew was the guy to rankle the different positions and bring everyone to some type of agreement and avert disaster. what is funny is the same goodwill he was able to build up through a lot of the past spen
've been a republican for 30 years. i voted for ronald reagan. i voted for the first george bush. i voted for the first term of the second george bush. >> thanks for coming. we ask you to call in the line that best reflects your political point of view. pamela is in new bedford, massachusetts on our democrats line. hi. >> caller: hi. for me i could be no more proud of being a woman, being a vet flan the united states marine corps. today was wonderful. seeing all the line the parade route, the female marines, navy females, i just am amazed that how much progression that we have made, society as a whole and it is nice to see military people actually being awarded their metal of honor. older veterans as well as younger veterans. god bless america and god bless all the military people in afghanistan and iraq. host: this is a live look inside the convention center. service members enjoying the party at the commander in chief's ball. waiting to hear from vice president biden. we'll stay here live and continue to take your phone calls and tweets from inaugural 2013. here is a tweet from jon will
solar panels on the white house, that ronald reagan later tore down. but jimmy carter's vision of government is getting a little bit more of a second chance, i think, with obama's second speech. >> reaffirmed, perhaps, even. >> luke, you've covered the hill. what was the hill's response, yesterday, to the president's speech, to the events of -- >> before president obama had even left the luncheon, there was a statement out from cathy mcmorris rodgers, number 4 in the house gop conference who basically said, okay, there's a lot of nice words in this speech, but we would like to see some literal action. and the literal action is persuading the senate to pass a budget so we can move forward on fiscal issues. so i think you'll see some folks on the republican side, say, it was a beautiful moment for their country. obviously, they'll understand the significance of having an african-american president sworn in for a second time. but today, there was a press conference at 5:00 p.m., which is the first time we heard from house speaker john boehner since december 21st. i'm sure that the
